Best fried chicken in Chatt

For the money you get huge portions and the chicken is the best you can get in town. The service is always good and friendly. All types of people go here.

Visited last night. The chicken is great. Huge pieces. Juicy. Just really good chicken. And that's what you go for. If you are looking for decor or a family atmosphere or something other than chicken then you'll be disappointed. You go for really good fried chicken. You ignore the two steps away from being a biker bar atmosphere. If you... More

This is a busy place, but we were seated promptly. The food tasted fresh & the chicken was hot, crispy, & delicious. The sides were yummy as well. It isn't the best food I've ever had, but I left satisfied.

Although this place seemed to be in not one of the best areas, it was definitely worth it for the fried chicken. It was perfectly cooked and with large portions. The place itself is a little divey, but still ok for kids. Went around 5pm so it wasn't crowded, but heard it get have very long wait times later on.... More

Great fried chicken and a great atmosphere. We came here 18 months ago on a trip from the UK. We loved it so much we came back this week and we're not disappointed. Recommended!

We met our out of town family here for lunch after a day at the zoo. The wait was long, but well worth it! The fried pickles are the best I've ever had. The fried chicken was great too. Their staff was very sweet and accommodating for a family with 4 children under the age of 7. I'll definitely go... More

Stopped at the welcome center and asked a local volunteer where the best fried chicken was. She didn't do me wrong. This place is fantastic. The best fried chicken I have had. My wife got fried green tomatoes and hush puppies which were great also. While in the area, we stopped at the riverfront and walked in the park near... More
